K-Cinema: For Horowitz (My Piano)

2012/09/17 | 802 views | Permalink | Source

Join us for K-Cinema this month, featuring the acclaimed 2006 film For Horowitz ("My Piano") by Director Kwon Hyeong-jin .

Pianist Ji-su (Uhm Jung-hwa) left her dreams behind for a life of modest success teaching in a small town. Surrounded by mediocrity, Ji-su accepts the mentorship of troubled youngster Gyung-min (Shin Eui-jae), whose natural musical talent holds the promise of her own lost greatness. When Gyung-min receives the opportunity that Ji-su never had, she must decide whether to hold him close, or set him free as an artist.

Blending comedy and drama, performance and narrative, For Horowitz earned Kwon Hyeong-jin the Best Director prize at Koreas Grand Bell Awards in 2007, along with nominations for Best Music, Best Screenplay, and Best Actress, for Uhm Jung-hwa.

Doors open at 6 pm for a reception with Korean refreshments. The film (108 minutes) will begin promptly at 6:30 pm, followed by a moderated discussion with KCC staff.

NOTE: Due to unforseen circumstances, the Sept. 13 screening event has been cancelled. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. The Sept. 27 will take place as scheduled.

Date: Thursdays, Sept. 27
Time: 6:30 pm (doors open at 6:00 pm)
Location: Korean Cultural Center - 2370 Massachusetts Ave. NW Washington DC 20008
